Hi Bobbie

My name is ***** ***** I would be happy to help you with your concern about family dynamics. Just to be clear, the son you asked about visiting this summer is the Veteran or the son who lives with your ex?

This sounds like a very painful situation. I am sorry you find yourself in this predicament. Can you be more specific about what has happened in the past that has led you to the conclusion that your husband is bad-mouthing you to your children? You said your son was evasive about having you visit. Can you be more specific about what was said during that conversation?
